Great location, great for families - the general Newcastle information centre is also located here with really helpful and friendly staff as your start-off/go-to place for all things Newcastle.
The gift shop stocks some nice postcards and souvenirs if you're into that kind of thing, and there is a lot of pamphlets and travel brochures if you want to see what there is around the Hunter region to check out on your travels. In regards to Maritime history and information, there isn't that much to look at for free... 更多
Another great place to visit.. lots of information, staff very helpful, the exhibits change from time to time, worth the time it takes..
Don't be fooled by the seemingly nondescript historic waterside shed in the heart of Newcastle's Honeysuckle Precinct. Inside is a treasure of artifacts steeped in Newcastle's rich Port history.

The Maritime Centre is also home to the Visitor Information Centre, and entry to the Maritime Centre is a reasonable $10 per adult. The Centre is not overly big, however there is a lot to see and a lot of information on the history of shipbuilding, shipwrecks and shipping in Newcastle. Well worth an hour or so of your time.
